    SEVERE ADHD

    I need some suggestions beyond patience, etc. I work with a woman who moves constantly at lightening speed (not exaggerating), speaks at lightening speed, and the mere mention that something may need to be done evokes immediate action to head up the project....consistently. It is becoming a problem of great proportions as others in the office need to be able to shine and bring their expertise into certain situations. Our ADHD gal takes others ideas and promotes them immediately. She moves from project....
  • How to get tested/dx for ADD

    I'm a 41yo woman. In the past 6 years I have been to 3 different (GP) doctors and asked each to schedule testing for ADD for me. The 1st told me I was just too busy in life. The 2nd (about 2 years later) told me he didn't believe in that dx. The 3rd (approximately 1&1/2 years ago) told me we would address it later. The 3rd Dr was part of the same network of Drs the 1st is part of. When I went in for a second visit with Dr3 I spoke with them about getting testing done. There were 0 notes....

    Need feedback please

    Hi. I was diagnosed as hyperactive as a kid but my mom pulled me off Ritalin because it made me zombie like. 30 years later I have been rediagnosed and prescribed concerta.

    What do I need to fix this?

    I will hear someone talking or teaching me but am unable to listen and understand what I just heard. My mind goes off into nothingness all the time. Even if my mind doesn’t do that I can even try repeating (im my head) what I’m hearing and still not rememb any of it. It makes day to day things difficult. I can’t keep conversation going, I can’t barely learn anything, I forget stuff all the time. What do I need to do?

    Long Term Effect

    I have been on my ADHD meds for 12 years and I am staring to get worried because I have had a lot of health problems recently that could be considered side effects of the drugs. But there doesn't seem to be much research on the long term effects of concerta. I have been taking it since I was 7 years old and my dosage only changed once when I was 8 or 9.

    I have ADHD

    I was on 120mg of Adderall for ADHD and Narcolepsy, and my Doctor told me, "It makes you manic and suicidal; never take it again, and if you do, I'll end our sessions!" Now, I have nothing!
